Are you waiting for Koikimo season 2 like I am? If you are, this article is for you (I promise- not everyone is a disappointment, unlike your ex).
The Japanese romantic comedy art collection Koikimo, also known as Koi to Yobu ni wa Kimochi Warui, was created by Mogusu. It was initially posted on Pixiv until January 2015, when Ichijinsha’s Comic POOL digital manga magazine began serializing it online. Between January 2015 and March 2021, eight tank-bon volumes were published. Nomad’s adaptation of an anime television series debuted on March 29, 2021, on streaming services, and from April 5 through June 21, 2021, on television.
SO, the burning question- will Koikimo return for a second season? When is the second season of Koi to Yobu ni wa coming out? Read on to find out, everything we know about Koikimo season 2!
Koikimo Season 2 Release Date
The release date for Koikimo Season 2 has not been formally announced by Studio Nomad or any other organization connected to the anime’s development as of this writing. Also unannounced is the creation of a Koikimo sequel.
The manga series had a global sales total of over a million copies at the start of 2021. Some of the manga’s last chapters are adapted for the anime’s concluding episode. There is a possibility of a second season or an OVA.
If the producers choose to continue the series without using any source material, it could be approved. Koikimo Season 2 could debut in 2023 once it has a unique narrative. Following the release of the official renewal, we will update this section.
Koikimo Season 2 Cast and Characters
Ichika Arima voiced by Yurie Kozakai- Is a 17-year-old high school student who finds up getting Ryo’s passionate advances after saving him from falling down the stairs and giving him her lunch. Her name means “one flower,” thus Ryo probably gives her one flower every day to her residence as a method to express his affections because of this. Ichika doesn’t appear to mind Ryo’s presence, despite rejecting him each time he tries to approach her.
- Ryo Amakusa voiced by Toshiyuki Toyonaga- A 27-year-old womanizer salaryman falls in love with Ichika after giving her his own body as thanks for saving him and getting a lukewarm response.
- Rio Amakusa is voiced by Rena Hasegawa- Ichika’s best friend at school and Ryo’s younger sister, who is sympathetic to her brother’s concerns.
- Kai Tamaru is voiced by Junya Enoki- A classmate of Ichika’s who falls in love with her.
- Arie Matsushima is voiced by Kana Hanazawa- a coworker of Ryo’s who has affection for him.
- Masuda is voiced by Ryōhei Kimura- Since middle school, Ryo has known his independent cameraman pal.
Koikimo Season 2 Plot
One can fall in love in the strangest of ways. The wealthy genius playboy Ryou Amakusa appears to be a case where this assertion is particularly accurate. One rainy morning, Ichika Arima, a girl, stops him from falling over the steps. Later that evening, just by chance, Ryou runs across Ichika again; she just so happens to be Rio’s best friend.
Wanting to “thank” her, Ryou uses his typical charming techniques to court Ichika, but he is quickly rejected since his approach frightens her. Instead of giving up, Ryou grows more enamored of her and starts to use every trick in the book to win Ichika’s heart while always getting a nasty reply.
But as time goes on, will Ichika still find Ryou’s strange but devoted approaches repulsive?
That is what Koikimo is all about.
Koikimo season 1 didn’t give us the closure we needed, and we need to know how everything proceeds. The end of Koikimo Season 1, as described later in this article, described a situation draped in confusion. When Ichika eventually summons the confidence to contact Ryo, he acts distant by saying that he is preoccupied with work and won’t have time to speak with her for a long.
What happens next? Does Ryo come to an ethereal resolution in the form of stark realizations, or do they part ways?
Koikimo Season 1 Recap
When Koikimo Season 2, fingers crossed, does cross our screens, here’s a quick jog to your mind. The last few episodes of Koikimo season 1 went like this:
Arie expresses her emotions to Ryo by saying, “Even though I have a crush, I want to make an effort to make myself like me.” In the eyes of the outside world, Ryo is more likely to go out with Arie, which makes me question whether Ichihana won’t suffer due to the age gap. However, Masuda, who Ryo seldom ever asked to drink at home, gives Ryo the following advice: “I’m unprepared, and my sole concern is with myself. I ought to act honestly.” For the first time in a long, Ryo’s father visited his house at that moment.
After their spring break, Ichika and her classmates would be third-year students. Rio informs them that she intends to practice law, and Ichika becomes frightened since she is unsure about her future ambitions. Ryo recalls the disagreement he and his father had when they were younger and responds to Ichika’s question by saying that he simply followed the route that his parents had set out for him. Ryo’s father learns about his affections for Ichika as they are eating supper at home.
A few days after their flower viewing excursion, Ichika chooses to talk to Rio about her worries because she hasn’t heard from Ryo. Ichika feels a little anxious when Rio advises her to try contacting him on her own. Rio explains to her that because Ichika can’t decide how she feels about Ryo, she feels bad for her brother. When Ichika eventually summons the confidence to contact Ryo, he acts distant by saying that he is preoccupied with work and won’t have time to speak with her for a long.
